Parts of the New York region still cleaning up from Superstorm Sandy are bracing for a winter storm that could blanket the Northeast with heavy snow.
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for New York City, Long Island and southern Westchester County for Friday into Saturday.
The weather service says the city should get 10 to 12 inches of snow.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg noted that if bad weather has to happen, it's better to have it on a weekend.
On Long Island, Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst says officials are concerned about the impact of the storm in areas that were hit hard by Sandy.
Parts of upstate New York are expecting more than a foot of snow. Civil service examinations scheduled for Saturday have been canceled.
